    FSX Gold / Win 8.1 DirectX Issues

    Paul, I agree with you 100%. What I did not mention was that the CTO of my company (which is a very small company!) allowed, and even encouraged me to install FSX. I am in the payment processing world for digital goods, and despite FSX not having that much ecommerce traffic, it is a personal fav of mine and a way to get into understanding the bigger gaming world (Steam, etc.)... So I have full reigns. I just don't want to bug. And for add-ons, for now I am good Any help would be GREATLY apppreciated. Dan
  2. Hi all! I recently received a pretty good machine from work. See below for DxDiag info. I have the most recent windows updates and device drivers. After installing FSX Gold (without a hitch), whenever I try to launch FSX.exe, I get an error message saying "FSX Cannot run ... version of DirectX not compatible... Please reinstall v.9.0 by running FSX setup or". Is there an easy fix to this? My sensitive issue is I do not have admin rights on my laptop, but my IT dept is allowing for just FSX But everytime I want to make a change, I need to go to them. So a solution would be amazing!! I so appreciate any help, and let me know if you would like to discuss a donation Regards, Dan ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 2/11/2014, 10:12:15 Machine name: L10693 Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600) (9600.winblue_gdr.131030-1505) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
